can you see it? do you know what I mean?

I read about this super cool website in a magazine yesterday and wanted to share it with you today…

Autodesk® Homestyler® ( is a free online home design software that brings your interior design plans to life. It’s as easy to use as “drag & drop” and has a bunch of great features including:
Layout your floor plan — Layout rooms, size floor plans, and add in details like doors, windows, and furnishings in just minutes.

Decorate with real products — Choose from over 22,000 generic and brand name items in the product catalog.
Experiment with options — Try out different design ideas

Visualize your new space — Take a high-res snapshot of your final design to see a more realistic view of how things will look.

Save & share your design — Share your design ideas and get feedback from friends, family, design professionals, or the tradespeople you are going to work with.

The best part? You don’t have to download anything and it’s free!

I’m a very visual learner, but not a high-tech tech-y kind of gal, so this perfect for me! I suspect I’ll use this tool more than once…even if I’m not working on a specific project, it’s sort of fun to play around with it…

Is that so wrong?!
